The Old Grande Dame

Location and sense of history; also large rooms in Classic Wing
7.7
The faded elegance of history runs through the whole of the classic wing of the hotel. We had a huge and wonderful room with windows on 2 sides overlooking the Indian Ocean and Galle Face park. Large fan and two noisy air con machines. It does not have the polish that you would expect from a modern international chain (go to the Regency Wing if that is what you prefer). As you would expect from a building that is nearly 150 years old, the windows are a bit loose in places, the bathroom decor could be upgraded, an a number of other features do not work as well as you would expect from a modern hotel. But the bed was comfortable, the room was light and airy and spacious and we loved it for the style and character that is lacking in so many international hotels today. Came back to the hotel again after touring the country

Great location, great atmosphere, mediocre service

Location and colonial style hotel with a great sea view
7
The hotel is in a great location for exploring the city. It has a great pool, great seaside terrace for sunset drinks and the hotel itself is like the old colonial hotels you see in the movies. The service is not very good, but overall a great hotel and close to all the city sights. Rooms are a bit dated, but so is the hotel. No free wifi available.

Lovely and great location

Fantastic location
5.7
Fantastic location for an old hotel. The reception staff are poorly trained and unable to be be useful in dealing with customer complaint. 3rd world service for a lovely hotel. Foods are great and very pleasant to spend your evening beside the sea.

Great location but really really tired

The hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment - I understand the regency side has had these done and until the whole hotel has been done I suggest people stay on this side of the hotel

Lovely location and charming hotel

location and property

Charming hotel with character right by the water. Beautiful property. Make sure to book into New wing - Regency Galleface. Old wing needs a makeover. Ask for a seaview too. Definitely recommend it and will definitely stay again when back.

Most awful hotel I even lived in all my travels.

Restaurant facing the sea
4
This is worse than a 2 star hotel in Europe with a five star price of a European hotels. Water leaked into our Bathroom from the cealing upstairs. The Bathroom and Bedroom has not been renovated since the 1950. The hotel is just there. Everything is falling apart in the furniture. AC very noisy. Not worth. Fortunately stayed only one night. Hotel reception was awful. Several of my friends telephoned and staff said we were not registered in the hotel. Missed a very important call staying in that hotel. The only thing that was good was the food and the restaurant on the sea I read bad reviews but I had already booked. Agree with every word on the bad reviews.
Hotel Feature Tip: The food on the terrace facing the beach is good. Dinner is very good and lovely with tables on the beach. Do not stay in the hotel. Only go for dinner.

Nice to go for an evening walk along the Galle Face green and feel a part of the culture and tradition of the locals. Lovely meals, had some of the best curries here.
